The Long and the Short of it

In the past couple weeks we saw some big-time book award lists announced. The National Book Award released their 2017 Longlist, and the Man Booker Prize finally announced their shortlist finalists. (You may remember seeing their longlist from a couple months ago.)

Some of the selections are Bookloft Staff Picks! (We're obviously rooting for those to win.)

CLICK THE ICONS below to be taken to the lists for each award:

Fall Staff Picks

It feels like fall, and here at the Bookloft we're getting ready to curl up with blankets and warm books. Here are just some newest staff picks you'll see when you walk in the store.

Just click any cover to read each staffer's thoughts on that book. 

Who Will Win?

These are the books on the just-announced Man Booker Prize International shortlist. Who do you think will win?

The Man Booker International Prize is an international literary award hosted in the United Kingdom. Each year the award recognizes a single book in English translation, which then takes home £50,000, to be shared equally between the author and the translator.
